Recurring themesEdit

Many knightswords are affiliated with the Holy Element, some examples being the Mythgraven Blade from Final Fantasy IV, Excalibur, and Save the Queen. Some staves used by White Mages are imbued with the Holy element.

SpellsEdit

A common spell affiliated to the holy element is the Holy spell, usually obtained near the end of the game. Other skills and abilities with the same element exist in the Final Fantasy universe. The Holy spell serves as a main plot device in Final Fantasy VII.

FFIVDS Holy Icon

Under the guise of the Sacred Power element in the SNES version due to censorship. In the game's original SNES version, equipping an armor resistant to the Dark element makes them weak against Holy and vice versa. This only applies to armor, since it doesn't affect monsters. The Advance version removes this behavior. In the Nintendo DS release, Meteor is Non-elemental. In all other releases, it is Holy-elemental.

Final Fantasy VIIEdit

As mentioned above, the Holy spell serves as a major plot device and therefore is not usable by the player. The only way to inflict Holy damage in this game is through the use of the Alexander materia. In addition to summoning it, linking the Alexander materia and an Elemental materia onto a character's weapon will add the Holy element to attacks. This is the only way to make use of the the Holy resistance of the Minerva and and Ziedrich, as there is no Holy-Elemental enemy ability in the game.

Final Fantasy XEdit

Holy is a rare element in this game, and Holy affinities are not shown when an enemy is Scanned. However, in some cases it can be visible. Usually when using equipment with Sensor, a particular line of alignment (weak, resist, etc) will only show up if at least one element falls under it. However, if the enemy has an alignment to Holy, but doesn't have the same alignment to any other element, that line will still show up but appear blank. This only works with Sensor; as Scan always shows all lines regardless.
